Not too long ago a good friend of mine gave me a sweet “just because” card with a gift card in it to H&M. Talk about a nice little surprise!! I wanted to share one of the tops I had been eyeballing on the website and got to purchase this weekend. I liked this top because I thought it was a unique take on a mesh top. It also came in black which is what I typically would go for because I am a sucker for black clothing. I decided to be different and just go for it. This shade of red is a lot of fun because it is nice and bright and has an orange undertone which I feel is a more flattering shade of red with my skin-tone. It also matched a pair of shoes that I already had! Typically, I don’t go for matchy-matchy but I liked it for this specific look because I paired it with the black bralette to help break up the red along with my new dark jeggings from Talbots (my new denim obsession-seriously, go try a pair on because you won’t regret it). I would wear this look for a night out with the ladies or a date night with your significant other.
I also liked the challenge this top gave me to style it differently. Here, I decided to pair it with a black tank for a more casual look and my go-to leopard-print slip-ons. I also threw on the lace kimono and black fedora to show different layering techniques. I would wear this look multiple places such as a downtown art fair or a day of shopping (a great look that can mask a bad hair day and provide a trendy look without much effort.
Lastly, this shows the look without the hat in case you aren’t a hat person. Simply by taking off the hat it transforms this look. What color would you like to wear more?
